Left declares victory in Culture War

Frank Rich suggests that the bad economy means the GOP will never again be able to gain traction with cultural conservatism. My rejoinder at AmSpecBlog:
Rich is certainly correct that, with Citibank trading for less than the cost of an ATM fee, the primary "value" voters are interested in now is the value of their 401Ks.
If there is any encouragement for traditionalists it is this: Just as there is little public appetite for conservative alarums over cultural issues, neither is there any appetite for liberal alarums. If the Obama administration makes a point of pushing liberal social policies, a backlash is possible, recession or no recession.
Please go read the whole thing. And hit the tip jar, because it's almost Tuesday again.
